Take Two! this week will probably look a little different. Since this list has started to expand, I’ve decided to break them up with some graphics and attempts at page jumps! I’ve also added Nendoroid News to this post to talk about releases and pre-order end dates.
IN CASE YOU MISSED IT:
It was kind of SAO week last week here at Archi-Anime, due to the Ordinal Scale release in the US. I kind of enjoy doing the series’ themed week’s just because it’s fun to come up with a variety of things architecture and non-architecturally related.
- Catch the Moment || Sword Art Online: Ordinal Scale: The featured song for Ordinal Scale, as sung by LiSA an ongoing performer for SAO. She’s pretty awesome.
- Megane Monday!: I listed my top 10 Meganes’ for the first March Monday.
- Anime Watch Update: I finally caught up to a majority of Winter 2017’s shows; but still have a few more to go.
- Lady Rapier: Asuna Yuuki: Continuing with SAO inspired posts; I look at what I love about one of my newest favorite leading ladies.
- [FIRST IMPRESSIONS]: Yowamushi Pedal: My sports bias is starting to show. I started this on a whim and have to say I’m pretty into it after only watching 4 episodes so far
- ANI-Reality: Sword Art Online S2: Linked to Asuna, I look at her trip to Kyoto, Japan from the Mother’s Rosario arc, and this fantastic piece of historical architecture.
- [FIRST IMPRESSION]: NIER:AUTOMATA/DEMO REVIEW: I’d been eyeing this since I saw the demo on PSN; so I thought I’d give it a whirl. With that said, I think I’ll be buying this one.
- [REVIEW] SWORD ART ONLINE: ORDINAL SCALE: Second to last SAO post for the week (and for awhile). I got to see the US Movie Release and was pleasantly surprised.
- Thrymheim Dungeon, Jotunheimer: Fantasy Friday looked at the architecture and mythos that’s behind the Excalibur Arc of SAO season 2.
LAST WEEK’S INTERESTING READS:
I’m going to do something a bit different here. I won’t just link anime related posts. I’m opening this up to gaming, architecture, art, anything I’ve found worthwhile on the internet!

- Final Fantasy XV Fan Scrapbooks Her Adventure: Cute Idea!
- First Impressions: Nintendo Switch: Lethargic Ramblings gives a rundown on the newest console/hand-held from Nintendo.
- Breaking Gender Norms, Healing Trauma and Finding Acceptance in PriPara: I ran across this post randomly and thought it was great look at an anime I had never considered watching before. But this gives me reason to now!
- My Thoughts on Yuri!!! on Ice: Avathenerd discusses what she liked and didn’t like about the show. It’s a different take on the hype that surrounds YOI, its straightforward and honest.
- Anime Plots/Idea I’d Like To See Happen…LIKE NOW !!: Lita Kino discusses some ideas she’d like to see in Anime forms!

We are a group of otaku bloggers who promotes acceptance of all individuals regardless of race, gender, sexual orientation, religion and disability. We emphasize the importance of respect, kindness, and tolerance to every human being.
Our March theme looks at the theme of “Sanctuary”. The prompt is as follows:
A sanctuary is a place of safety and stability. In anime, there are several different places and environments that characters call “home.” For this topic, we will be discussing various locations and settings within certain anime series.
Last week’s posts included blog posts from:
- Matt (of matt-in-the-hatt) :
Sword Art Online – Finding Sanctuary in Gaming
- Takuto (of animecafehost):
Evangelion’s Misato Provides a Home for the Lonely
- Naja (of nice job breaking it, hero) looks at Haikyuu!! in her post:
We’re All on the Same Team: Finding Sanctuary on the Volleyball Court
Now, this is a super new segment. As many of you know, I have a huge passion for collecting nendoroids. Aside from my Nendoroid Nonsense posts, I’ll be writing about upcoming release’s, pre-orders and ending pre-orders in this section. It didn’t make sense to write about this separately so I’ve decided to include it in Take Two!
Note: These release dates and ending pre-order dates are based on the information I’ve read from Good Smile. I typically order from Good Smile and from OtakuMode – I have a post in the works regarding tips on buying and etc!
- As of March so far there have been two releases:
- Leonardo Watch (Blood Blockade Battlefront & Beyond):
With Season 2 on the way, they’ve decided to release Leonardo complete withthree faces plates: standard expression, an expression with his eyes open making use of his powers and a crying expression. His last day for pre-order on Good Smile is March 30, 12pm JST.
Optional parts: include his goggles, backpack and camera as well as a hamburger and effect parts for his powers. He also comes with a text plate based on the introduction of his character to display with him, and Sonic Speed Monkey.
- Nendoroid More: Face Parts Case (Penguin):
This series of Nendoroids were created as fun little pieces to accompany Nendoroids. It basically holds your face plates in one handy container while using one for display
- Leonardo Watch (Blood Blockade Battlefront & Beyond):
